London prepares for Six Nations

London's famous Twickenham Stadium will host a number of Six Nations rugby ties over the coming months.

Rugby fans will need to book their central London hotels as soon as possible to see England as they compete against Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy during the famous championship. 

Lucky ticketholders will be able to see a whole host of famous players in action including Louis Deacon, Chris Robshaw, Toby Flood, and Ben Foden.

England forward Tom Wood believes that England are in a great position to take the title this year.

He told BBC Sport: "We want to be classed as a world-class team.

"We're very confident in ourselves and we've got belief in what we're doing. Without disrespecting any other team, our intention is to go out there and win it.

"Success for us would be winning everything."

The opening match at the 82,000 capacity ground will see England face Scotland – who will be keen to reverse their last defeat at the hands of the home nation.

England will then take on France, where they will be hoping to repeat their victory in Paris last year.

The first home match of the championship will take place on February 2nd; England will then play France on February 23rd and England on March 10th.

Fans staying in central London will be able to catch mainline trains to Twickenham station from London Waterloo. The station is a short walk from the Stadium.

For those travelling by London Underground there are trains to Richmond on the District Line and a regular shuttle bus service between Richmond and Twickenham stadium on event days.
